go with the flow - sewing the flowers together

We discussed various methods for assembling our 9 flowers into the cushion covers.  In the end we opted for attaching them in straight rows with filler hexagons in the middle.  Then also having a border row so that we don't lose half a flower when we put the backing on the cushion.

Where I have joined my flowers I've used a green filler hexagon.  Then in the big gaps and for the border I'm using a sand coloured fabric with little tiny white dots on it.  (From my stash).

And just because I love this photo - here are my other 45 completed flowers!
